Are you teaching persuasive writing? Not sure how to introduce the concept or teach the structure of opinion writing? Then this introductory persuasive writing PowerPoint is perfect for your literacy lessons. It is a comprehensive introduction to persuasive (opinion) writing for your students.
When I started my persuasive writing unit each year, I wanted to introduce the concept. I was looking for a way to tell students about what persuasive writing is and how it is structured. But…I needed a way to explictly teach the concept that was actually engaging. When I just talked AT students, they looked disinterested.
Well if you know how this feels, this PowerPoint is for you.
That’s why I created this persuasive writing PowerPoint. I was thrilled to see that my students loved the colorful clip art that moved around. They enjoyed the examples and questions that encouraged the collaborative sharing of their ideas. I could see that every student was enjoying the lesson, participating in the discussions, and actually understanding the concept. It became a life saver.
